Prithvi Shaw created history on Thursday by becoming the youngest Indian cricketer to score a century on debut as they slammed 134 off 154 balls on Day 1 of the first Test match against West Indies in Rajkot.

Talking about Shaw, the opener brought up his century in the 32nd over and became the youngest Indian, and fourth youngest overall to score a hundred on his debut. He scored a century off 99 balls to become the third fastest cricketer to score a debut hundred.

Last Indian to achieve this feat was Rohit Sharma, also against West Indies in 2013.

Shaw is the seventh youngest worldwide batsman to score his first Test century. At lunch, he was batting alongside Cheteshwar Pujara, in a strong recovery after India lost an early wicket of KL Rahul in Rajkot.

Shaw's innings was studded with 19 fours while Pujara hit 14 boundaries before poking at a length ball half-heartedly to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich off pacer Sherman Lewis, who bagged his first Test scalp.

This will be Windies' first Test in India for the first time since 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar had bid farewell from global cricket. He also produced a delightful straight drive on way to reaching his half-century which came off 56 balls.

In the morning, Shaw, who became the 293rd cricketer to represent India in Tests, showed supreme confidence from ball one, on which he offered a watchful leave.

Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, who made 41, took over from Shaw with a patient 105-run partnership despite West Indies bowlers keeping a tidy line and length to check the flow of runs in the final session of play.

With tea beckoning, West Indies struck twice to temporarily stall India's progress.

Shaw earned a reputation as a batting prodigy. Kemar Roach returned home for the funeral of his grandmother, and captain Jason Holder withdrew because of an ankle injury.
